The 10th Regiment of the 1st Division of the Corps fought the “first battle” of cotton production
As the weather warms up, more than 200,000 acres of cotton in Chang’an Town, the 10th Regiment of Alar City, the First Division of the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, have begun to sow cotton, with sowing modes such as “dry sowing and wet seeding” and “thick film” A good foundation has been laid for local cotton sowing, cotton harvest, and increased income of cotton farmers.
In a cotton field of the 13th Company of the 10th Regiment, three large seeders equipped with Beidou navigation systems shuttled back and forth, creating a busy scene in the field. Since the beginning of the cotton sowing work, the Party Committee of the 10th Regiment has strictly implemented the task of promoting the use of thickened film and black film. Currently, the entire regiment has promoted the use of thickened film on 95,000 acres.
Xu Jimin, an employee of the 13th Company of the 10th Regiment, said: “The quality of this year’s thick film is good, and the subsidies given by the regiment are also good. The price is about the same as the conventional film used before. Our contractors all like to use it.”
It is understood that thickened film is a new sowing method launched by Alar City in the first division this year to reduce costs, improve quality and output, and can ensure the recycling of mulch films from the source. The 10th Regiment and 13th Company promoted the use of thickened film on more than 2,500 acres, accounting for about 50% of the cotton planting area in the entire company.
“The thick film has good thermal insulation effect, and it also has a windproof effect on the side sealing soil.” said Miao Aijiang, deputy secretary of the Party branch of the 13th Company of the 10th Regiment.
In recent years, the Party Committee of the 10th Youth League has guided workers, large growers, and farmer cooperatives to carry out large-scale high-quality machine-picked cotton planting, and the scale and intensification of agriculture have continued to increase. The “dry sowing and wet out” sowing technology has been widely promoted. According to statistics, the 10th Regiment will sow 202,000 acres of cotton this year, and the cotton planting area using the “dry sowing and wet out” sowing technology is 170,000 acres, an increase of 150,000 acres over last year.
